Dead Weeds and New Life from Stump
The main path at Larry Moore Park in Paso Robles is lined with dead weeds and dead trees at this time of year. Some of the dead trees have been there for years, along with more than one generation of dead poison hemlock and milk thistles. The weeds reseed every year. The stump of the tree that broke apart a couple of winters ago refuses to give up and die. You can see that it wants to put forth new shoots and restore itself. If you would like a closer look, just click the photo to enlarge it.
